Background

Akershus University Hospital is moving into a new and very beautiful building this year. How do the employees manage the large changes which follows the move? They will meet new architecture, high tech in all their tasks, a new organisation of nurses and doctors etc. The situation is asking for a scientific follow up of how the employees manage the changes.

Purpose and objectives

To follow nurses, leaders and doctors in two divisions before, through and after the move. I have two important wishes for the participants: care and empowerment. That means that the leaders, nurses and doctors have a place for reflection on their own situation. Perhaps we after the five year follow up know more about how to prepare for such a move. Do the staff feel they are able to do a good job according to their own standards? And perhaps we also know more about how the changes mirrors the larger community stories of the culture of today.

Methodology and actions

Qualitative interviews individually with leaders and chief physicians. Focus group interviews with nurses. In our communication they decide what to talk about, and I thereafter challange them to further clarification for themselves and for me. Through the interviews the participants are also challanged to examine what they are able to do themselves in order to prepare for the new situation.

Main target groups

Staff
